Nissan Cedrics Speed Through Daitokai, The Big City

You may recognize some of the faces here, but this is not Seibu Keisatsu. Rather, it’s Daitokai (“The Big City”), a Japanese television series that preceded the car chase-filled antics of Tokyo’s western district.

Tetsuya Watari (Sgt. Daimon in Seibu) plays Raisuke Kuroiwa, a different Nissan-driving, sawed-off shotgun-toting, aviator-wearing badass. Although the big city has no shortage of Cedric sedans screeching around narrow streets, knocking over fruit stands and empty baby prams, we learn a very valuable lesson here: do not to get taken hostage by armed criminals in Japan. The cops tend to shoot first and check if you’re okay second. Watch the video below the fold.

    5:29 – Toyota Century in background?

    If you ask me, Tetsuya has a morbid fascination with shooting people in the face! He should get that checked!

    6:17 skline japan? 6:40 Honda N360?

    @ tom: Sure looks like one to me!

    Wow! Shotguns are way more accurate and certainly less messy in Japan than they are in the U.S. Wonder how they do that?

    Might be a different round. Shotgun shells do come in other loads.

  6. Ben says:

    bert – so true. And we didn’t even talk about Guerilla Group 8!

    yep, the man has a problem!

  7. Jim-Bob says:

    I am surprised no one mentioned the two Honda Super Cubs parked next to the N360 at the end.

  8. Killua says:

    That KE26 Wagon at 6:48 looks like it has been a bit abused. Pretty cool nonetheless.

  9. Sarcasmo says:

    I like the Datsun B210 at 2:00 and the Mark II at 2:50

    Nice 610 and Celica liftback parked at 6:23 🙂
